Elders Take the Baton in Ongoing Climate Protest Against Citigroup

HeadlineJun 14, 2024

Here in New York, climate protests continued for a fourth day outside of Citigroup headquarters Thursday, where police arrested 56 people, many of them elders. Thursday’s protest, led by the group Third Act, came under the banner of the “Rocking Chair Rebellion,” which is part of the “Summer of Heat” series of actions. Senior citizens blocked Citigroup’s entrance with more than 50 rocking chairs, demanding climate justice for future generations.

Palestinian rights activists have also been protesting Citigroup this week, calling on the bank to stop funding Israel. The group Al-Awda says Citibank provided a $2.5 billion loan for Israel to purchase F-35 fighter planes in 2021 that the U.S. is now repaying.
